Buffalo Cheese Dogs with Blue Cheese Slaw

Buffalo Cheese Dogs with Blue Cheese Slaw

  • Yield: 8 servings 1x



For the Buffalo Cheese Sauce:

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar or Monterey jack cheese
  • ⅓ cup buffalo hot sauce
  • ¼ cup ranch or blue cheese dressing
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

For the Slaw:

  • 2 tablespoons mayo
  • 2 tablespoons Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 3 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 bag coleslaw mix (you can certainly shred your own)
  • ½ cup crumbled blue cheese (you can sub with feta if you don’t like blue cheese)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

For Assembly:

  • 8 hot dogs
  • 8 hot dog buns
  • Additional buffalo hot sauce
  • Additional crumbled blue cheese
  • Fresh herbs, such as parsley or chives


For the Buffalo Cheese Sauce:

  1. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Once it’s melted and starting to bubble, whisk in the flour.
  2. Whisk together to create a roux and cook for 1-2 minutes until the mixture turns slightly golden.
  3. Slowly add the milk, whisking constantly, and stir until the milk thickens.
  4. Add in the cheese and whisk until melted and smooth.
  5. Whisk in the hot sauce and dressing and season, to taste, with salt and pepper. Go light on the salt: the other ingredients have quite a bit.
  6. Keep warm until you are ready to serve.

For the Slaw:

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the mayo, yogurt, vinegar, and sugar. Season with a little salt and pepper, to taste.
  2. Add in the coleslaw mix and toss until everything is evenly coated in the dressing.
  3. Add the cheese and gently fold it in. Check the seasoning and adjust as necessary.
  4. Keep chilled until you are ready to serve.

To Assemble:

  1. Grill your hot dogs to your desired crispiness (I love a well-done dog). Place the cooked hot dogs in the buns.
  2. Drizzle each hot dog with the buffalo cheese sauce and then top with the slaw.
  3. Garnish with additional buffalo sauce, blue cheese, or chopped fresh herbs. Serve immediately.
